    I really like this bike, next Tuesday I'm going to ride it for a test. I want to test the CB500F 2019 also, I may buy both.

    It's certainly not a Grom. It's around 100 lbs heavier, has 17" wheels, and is dimensionally a lot larger.

    Exactly, that's what a Grom 300cc would look like, more weight, bigger tires, 6 speeds, more power, faster 0-60 (about 6 seconds), more stability, more agility, a bigger bike, for like 2k more and behaves more like a Grom. This is what the reviewers are saying, I just want to confirm all this when I test it.

    Me too. I have great hopes for this new CB300R 2019, it looks beautiful, but the CB500F 2019 is excellent too like for $2K more or so. Once I test ride both I'll make a decision as to what I'll get or maybe I like both and get both

    i had a cb300f. it's a fine bike, but it's nothing like a grom, and it's nothing like a grom with a 300 in it.

    I came from a 919/CB900F and the Grom is the perfect size for me... I just wish it had more power and gears. Earlier, I googled "CB300R 12" wheels" lol

    Putting 12 inch wheels on a cb wouldn't work overly well

    You give up a lot of ground clearance, and the bike is still way bigger than a Grom. It wouldn't look right at all
